Community Resilience: Stories from the Ground highlights the insights of five individuals whose work resonates in international and local communities. Presenters draw from their personal and professional experiences to share themes explored by the conference:  definitions of successful, healthy communities; how local communities promote inclusion and reconciliation; the role of the individual in community transformation; how successful examples of community resilience inform global consciousness away from fear and violence; and how governance structures and policies can foster community resilience in an increasingly globalized world.
